Step 2 registers your name as an official applicant with Fairfax County. You will receive an email confirmation after you complete each step.

To fill out the form online, you must have Adobe Reader 8 or higher on your computer. Older versions of Adobe Reader do not have the features required for completing and saving this form. Download your free copy of the latest Adobe Reader.
